“Only after the last tree has been cut down, Only after the last river has been poisoned, Only after the last fish has been caught, Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten”. Cree Indian Prophecy
The 1776 Declaration of Independence stated that when a long train of abuses by those in power evidence a design to reduce the rights of people to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it is the peoples right, in fact their duty to engage in a revolution.
and ….. JFK in his own words !
In a speech to the Newspaper Publishers Association in 1961, President Kennedy said:
“No president should fear public scrutiny of his program, for from that scrutiny comes understanding, and from that understanding comes support or opposition; and both are necessary. . . . Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed, and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law makers once decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment.”
Abraham Lincoln said, just before his assassination:
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country...Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed."

Recently, we had a look at the ways President Trump's Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, is making her predecessor, "humanitarian bomber" Samantha Power, look like a model diplomat by comparison. It turns out Haley's ghastly performance at the UN thus far is no fluke. Each time she opens her mouth she spews notthe kind of foreign policy t […]

Trump has no military experience, a rich kid who was given a hand up and special privilege all his life, just like George W. Bush and so many others. Bush did a bit of time in the Texas National Guard, staving off real service in Vietnam which might have been dangerous. At least this is something, and Bush got a look at the military and knew enough not to ta […]
Donald Trump has taken to Twitter yet again to blast reports that Russian hackers interfered to help him win the presidency as "fake news." "Russia talk is FAKE NEWS put out by the Dems, and played up by the media, in order to mask the big election defeat and the illegal leaks!" the US leader wrote.
The nature of the leaks and the publishers the information has been passed to, says far more about what's going on the Washington than the content of the leaks. When Julian Assange's Wikileaks, published the infamous Clinton and DNC emails during the course of the US Presidential Election, the world learnt a great deal.
In October 2014, the Washington Post openly speculated that Russia was responsible for spreading Ebola. So in the spirit of speculation, and especially considering that no less than four top Russian diplomats have dropped dead in the last two months, we would like to share a rough chronology of all the "tragic accidents" and straight-up assassinati […]
Comment: The following is an interesting look into the lobbying activities of US military veterans, and the 'not-so-hidden hand' of Saudi Arabia. As the reader will see, the entire fiasco seems, if anything, designed to draw attention to Saudi Arabia and their fight against 9/11 legislation. No doubt the Saudis are involved in all sorts of nasty in […]

Válka v Sýrii je první válkou, která se v naší současné, digitální éře vedla po více jak šest let. Tuny dokumentů, které měly zůstat v tajnosti po celá léta, se již začaly zveřejňovat. Ačkoliv byly uveřejněny v jiných zemích, aby se o nich mezinárodní veřejnost nedozvěděla, jsme již dnes schopni si sestavit, kousek po kousku, celkový obraz věcí, jak se asi u […]
Osvobození Aleppa znamená konec pokusu svrhnout vládu Syrské arabské republiky. Bylo to možné pouze díky odstoupení Kataru a částečné změny pozice Turecka. Avšak část Sýrie je pořád obsazena džihádisty ve službách NATO. Další vojenské vítězství a konec války proto závisí na tajných jednáních, která teprve začínají mezi členy Severoatlantické aliance.

Po zpochybnění důvěryhodnosti Dilmy Rousseff (v Brazílii) parlamentem a po příchodu Mauricia Macriho do Casa Rosada v Argentině se Spojené státy zoufale snaží zvýšit svou vojenskou přítomnost v Latinské Americe, soustřeďujíce svou pozornost na Jižní cíp (tj. Chile, Argentinu a Uruguay). Peru, členský stát Pacifické aliance, je nejnovější obětí imperiálních a […]
Zatímco atlantický tisk pokračuje ve falešné debatě o Donalda Trumpovi, vnucené během kampaně Hillary Clintonovou, a zároveň vyzývá k atentátu na zvoleného prezidenta, chystá se Trump změnit paradigma a svrhnout puritánskou ideologii, které jeho zemi vládne po dvě staletí. Ale může uspět?
Tribunály v Norimberku a Tokiu umožnily spojencům odhalit zločiny, které spáchala Osa zla během druhé světové války, a také posloužily k tomu, že ospravedlnily jak cenu za vítězství, tak za nadvládu nad světem. Na základě tohoto modelu Washington uvěřil, že může soudit a nakonec odsoudit 120 syrských představitelů, včetně prezidenta Bašára Assada, aby tak os […]
Thierry Meyssan pokračuje ve svém příběhu o válce, kterou nastartoval Washington a jeho spojenci proti zbytku světa. Do boje vstoupil Egypt. Izrael napadl Sýrii. Turecko navzdory protestům Bagdádu udržuje své jednotky v Iráku. Míříme k pátému rusko-čínskému vetu v Radě bezpečnosti OSN, které bude tentokrát uplatněno proti francouzskému návrhu rezoluce. […]
Po pěti letech války v Sýrii spadly masky. Zveřejnění textu rusko-americké dohody odhaluje skryté záměry obou velmocí – Washington chce přerušit „Hedvábnou stezku“, zatímco Moskva chce zničit džihádisty. Kromě toho, selhání této dohody a debaty v Radě bezpečnosti OSN demonstrují surrealistický charakter rétoriky prezidenta Obamy – během pěti let nebyl schope […]
Vážený pane předsedo, vážené poslankyně a vážení poslanci Evropského parlamentu, stál jsem zde před rokem a řekl jsem vám, že naše Unie není v dobrém stavu. Řekl jsem vám, že v této Unii není dostatek Evropy. A že v této Unii není dostatek Unie. Nebudu tu dnes stát a říkat vám, že je teď všechno v pořádku. Není. Ve své diagnóze si nesmíme nic nalhávat.

Současný kurdský projekt podporovaný Francií a Spojenými státy nemá žádnou souvislost s legitimním projektem, jenž byl uznán těmi samými zeměmi během konference v Sēvres v roce 1920. Dokonce se ani nenachází poblíž stejného území! Tento pseudo Kurdistán není ničím více než západním úplatkem, s účelem obrátit syrské Kurdy proti Damašku. Jeho vytvoření nevyřeš […]
Historie NATO a jeho současných aktivit nám umožňuje pochopit, jak Západ spřádá své lži a proč je nyní jejich vězněm. Prvky obsažené v tomto článku jsou šokující, ale popírat tato fakta je nemožné. Jediným dalším řešením je lpět na lžích a vytrvale se jich držet.
Opponents of the Trump administration have generally accepted as fact the common theme across mainstream media that aides to Donald Trump were involved in some kind of illicit communications with the Russian government that has compromised the independence of the administration from Russian influence. But close analysis of the entire series of leaks reveals […]
Donald Trump’s appointments have provoked a uniform level of hysteria from his “progressive” opponents – “the Resistance” routinely goes to Defcon 1 in response to the President’s every tweet. Yet the virulence of their denunciations has an especially sharp edge to them when it comes to the foreign policy realm. Mike Flynn was portrayed as […] […]
“Chaos,” “dismay,” “radically inept” – those are just a few of the recent headlines analyzing Donald Trump’s foreign policy. In truth, disorder would seem to be the strategy of the day. Picking up the morning newspaper or tuning on the national news sometimes feels akin to opening up a basket filled with spitting cobras and […]
As the foreign policy establishment continues to grapple with the consequences of Trump’s election, U.S. officials can still agree on one thing. The United States is a nation that is waging a permanent war. In December 2016, President Obama reflected on the development in a speech that he delivered to US soldiers at MacDill Air […]
Originally posted at TomDispatch. The members of what TomDispatch regular Andrew Bacevich, author of America’s War for the Greater Middle East, calls “the Church of America the Redeemer” are in some disarray these days and in quite an uproar over the new Pope and his aberrant set of cardinals now ensconced in Washington. Perhaps there […]
A February NBC news poll reveals some dramatic diversity within the minds of Donald Trump’s America. The topics covered are varied, and include Americans’ current feelings about Russia, and their worries over a future major war (56 percent are very or somewhat worried). One other question caught my eye, however, and that was a choice […]
What is the “alternative” media?

History is a prime tool for manipulation of the masses, propaganda. It's easy to spot the flaws in someone else. How hard is it to examine your own history, use critical thinking skills, dig for multiple voices to add up to the same conclusion?
I will side with the UN on this one. Once apprehended, there is absolutely no reason to execute someone who would otherwise go to prison. The job of law enforcement does not entail acting as judge, jury, and executioner. Elor Azaria crossed a line which makes him a murderer. He should have been sentenced accordingly.
